Researcher for the Printed Electronics Line
|Sub Research Field:
CIDETEC is seeking to recruit an expert researcher in printed electronics and/or advanced printing techniques for the development of R&D, training and industrial projects in this field. The ideal candidate must have experience in top-level research, and demonstrable communication and collaboration skills within the framework of projects in the European and international environment.
The successful candidate will join CIDETEC Surface Engineering’s Nano-surfaces Unit and will work on training and/or company transfer projects. The Nano-surfaces unit has a multi-disciplinary team involved in the development of functional coatings and materials and processes for printed electronics. It addresses major challenges in order to respond to industrial demands and the European programmes, while maintaining a focus on sustainability.
The successful candidate must be capable of carrying out several projects simultaneously as part of their work, optimising resources and maximising results.
The researcher will work independently, according to the work plan defined.
They will be responsible for:
Management and planning/implementation of R&D projects.
Direct interaction with clients.
Reinforcement and promotion of the materials and process line for printed electronics.
Analysis of results, drafting reports and preparing presentations.
Preparation of proposals for applying for R&D subsidies in regional, national and European calls.
Writing scientific papers.
Degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering or similar.
Spoken and written fluency in English.
Knowledge and experience:
The successful candidate must demonstrate sound knowledge and experience in all or some of the following aspects:
- Printing techniques: screen printing and inkjet.
- Formulation/modification of inks and rheological measurements.
- Characterisation of printed layers (thickness measurements, adherence, electrical conductivity, contact angle, etc.).
- Substrate pre-activation to improve adherence of printed layers (plasma, chemical treatment, etc.).
Knowledge and experience of the following will be considered a plus:
- 2D vectorial and 3D design via CAD.
- Additive manufacturing (3D printing via FDM).
- Robotic equipment programming.
- Simulation and modelling of deformation processes, injection/overinjection.
Holding a doctorate degree will be positively valued.
We are seeking a highly motivated person with an interest in research and innovation. They must be able to organise their own work and meet deadlines and targets. Problem-solving capacity and scientific judgement. Good communication skills, verbal and written.
